That's why he's Larry Bird.

I've said it before, but Bird had the fundamentals to have played until he was 40 and still have been one of the best players (top 5) comfortably. Unfortunately, injuries robbed us of more years of Bird doing his thing. Bird as a Rookie was already off-the-charts brilliant/efficient but as he aged he was forced to use his intelligence even more and performances like the above are a testament to just how good he was even without the requisite fitness.

Bird, in his last season; crippled, old, past it, etc put up 19.7 points, 9.4 rebounds and 6.6 assists.

Just Imagine if Bird had Tom Chambers-like Athletic Ability...Unfair for the NBA!

I think Bird was who he was simply because he wasn't super-athletic a la Lebron. He was forced to be good fundamentally.

But if you had a mythical combination then you're looking at a 35/15/10 beast IMO. Bird really didn't possess the ball much and if he had the physique and handles of a Lebron - and played as a defacto PG - then it would have been absurd.
